2012 knitting events

It’s a new year, and so time for my annual round-up of the big fibre events in the UK.  Below you’ll find a list of the events that are coming up this year; there are some others in the works but I won’t post details until exact dates are confirmed.

Get your diaries out, here goes:

25-26 Feb        Unravel Farnham Maltings, Farnham, Surrey

28-29 April     Wonderwool Wales Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells, Powys, Wales

22-23 June     Woolfest Mitchells Lakeland Livestock Centre, near Cockermouth, Cumbria

14-15 July       Fibre-East Scald End Farm, Mill Rd, Thurleigh, Bedford

1-2 Sept           British Wool Weekend Harrogate

11-14 Oct         Knitting and Stitching Show Ally Pally, London

1-4 Nov           Knitting and Stitching Show RDS, Dublin

22-25 Nov      Knitting and Stitching Show Harrogate

I downscaled my knitting event attendance a bit in 2011 (but still made it to one or two events), so reckon it might be time to ramp it up again.   Tell me, what are you all saving your pennies for this year?

  1. I think I’ll go to Woolfest this year. I got some good deals there in 2009. Possibly Knit Nation too.
    How about you? Can I expect to see travelknitter yarns at any of the above yarn festivals?


    • I’m hoping for Woolfest too. I haven’t been for about four years, so I’d love to plan a road trip. I met the most beautiful alpaca and still have a cake of Heathcliffe alpaca yarn 🙂 Afraid there’s no Knit Nation this year though, sorry to bear bad news!
